Positive Reviews

Thumbs up for the rooms

Reviewers frequently mention that while the rooms here aren’t the height of luxury, they do provide all the essentials for a pleasant no-frills stay. Guests also enjoy the beautiful views of the river and surrounding mountains on offer from the balcony and many of the reportedly clean and neat rooms. Another aspect of this accommodation that attracts praise is the relaxing sound of the river running below the property.

Hospitality wins praise

The kind members of staff who are courteous and efficient win plaudits from travellers. Indeed, the great hospitality here extends to the food served in the on-site café. Diners say they enjoy the authentic local dishes in particular.

Location is popular

Not only does this property appeal to guests for its memorable position on rocks above a fast-flowing river in Old Manali, but also because those staying here can walk to nearby dining options and shops with relative ease. It also appeals to guests that this guest house occupies a relatively quiet spot at the top of the town.

Negative Reviews

Insufficient heating

Guests sometimes say they feel the chill on colder nights as the heating provided in the rooms isn’t powerful enough to warm things up significantly.

Too many steps

The last leg of the journey to reach this place involves tackling a reportedly steep flight of steps. This proves to be a challenge for those with mobility challenges or heavy baggage to lift.

Limited hot water

Guests complain that having hot water available when they want to shower is by no means guaranteed. It seems that the hot water tanks have limited capacity and that here is often not enough hot water to meet demand.
